Claude Monet Paintings
Claude Monet was a French Impressionist painter, known for his pioneering role in the development of the Impressionist style. He is considered one of the most important figures in the history of art, and his work has had a significant impact on the development of modern art. Monet is most famous for his series of paintings featuring a single subject, such as haystacks, poplars, and water lilies, which he painted at different times of the day and in different seasons to capture the changing effects of light and color. He was particularly interested in the relationship between color and light, and he often worked "en plein air" (outdoors) to capture the natural beauty of the French countryside. He died in 1926.
